It seems that I have not been here since May 2014!!!
I am pretty sure that I’ve done few posts since then but apparently I forgot to publish them or even save them so here we are.. more than two years later!
To explain in the shortest possible way, why I was missing for so long it’s actually not that difficult. I am a mummy now. So you do understand the absence..
My beautiful baby (now toddler) Dexter was born on the 18th of September 2014. He has been pretty much my ‘whole life’ since. Meaning, I forgot how it is to be able to pop in to my local charity shop, buy a bedside table and paint it on that same day. Now leaving the house takes forever; packing the changing bag, making sure I’ve got enough nappies, enough snacks, spare dummy, rain cover, pram, wait.. half way to the town I realise that my wallet is in the other changing bag! Why do I have two changing bags? After my return trip I finally manage to go to one of million charity shops on our high street, I buy a small wooden picture frame, that’s all I can fit in the storage of my pram, I convince myself I’ll paint it later. Few months later I do!
I am not complaining! No, no! I love it! But the truth is I have no time for hobbies at the moment, unless it’s after 8 pm and by then I am totally exhausted. I am back to work now too!
When I was pregnant friends would ask me “will you still do Shabtique?” They asked as they knew how much I loved it. OF COURSE was my answer. Of course I’ll do it, what else will I do while the baby sleeps? They always sleep… right? Yes, they do for the first couple of months, and when they sleep you sleep! The last thing on my mind was to start sanding something and painting it after.. Reality was that I was absolutely consumed by my little baby. And I loved every second of it, still do of course, but I too missed my little hobby.
So yes, here we are, even writing this post takes me couple of days…
Anyway, I will have to go back in time a little with my future posts as I have managed few projects over the past two years, just never had the chance to visit here and share it.
Enjoy! It’s so good to be back! (Even if only for few minutes)
